Tusker's climbing routes range from the budget-friendly 8-Day Marangu route to our flagship 14-Day Spiral route. On all our routes you climb with our same professional guiding team and superb mountain chefs.  All routes present a tapestry of options and durations catering to your comfort, altitude adjustment, and a kaleidoscope of landscapes, with diverse amenities both on and off the mountain.

Our routes give you a distinct Tusker experience, fine-tuned throughout our 47 years on Kilimanjaro. Our guides are medically trained experts with decades of climbing and rescue experience. Their primary focus is your health and safety, and of course, comfort during your life-changing adventure.

Tusker Trail is know for our renowned mountain chefs. On every route you enjoy delicious fresh meals designed to fuel you on your quest to the summit. All our chefs have been trained by the CULINARY INSTITUTE OF AMERICA, a world-famous chef’s academy.



When selecting the perfect route to climb Kilimanjaro, consider several key factors. First decide on the desired length of your climb. Take into account the acclimatization opportunities each route offers. The longer the route, the better you acclimatize to the high altitude. Also factor in your budget, as this will determine the length of your route.  It’s best to consult with our Kilimanjaro experts to find the route best suited to your needs.  By carefully considering these aspects, you can choose the ideal route that suits your abilities and maximizes your chances of summiting Africa's iconic peak.

Tusker Kilimanjaro Expert Guides

Leadership. Safety. Adventure.

The US Army chose Eddie Frank and his Tusker Trail, after carefully scrutinizing many guiding companies, to train the US SPECIAL FORCES at high altitude.  Eddie's vast experience, high altitude expertise,  and exceptional leadership skills were key factors in the selection. When Eddie trains Tusker's Mountain Guides, he employs the same techniques and rigorous standards that he utilizes with the Special Forces, establishing a guiding team that embodies excellence in leadership, and unmatched capabilities.

Energize. Reboot.

Tusker's Signature Mountain Camp is a place to retreat and replenish your strength.  It should be a haven where you can relax and enjoy the camaraderie with your fellow climbers.   That’s why we have custom-designed our stand-up, walk-in mountain tents, where you can walk in, spread out and get a good night's rest.
